Greetings! My name is Kirito and I'm a Master Tier Toplaner from Austria. Recently, I have seen some players starting to play Alistar on Toplane, so I gave it a shot aswell. Honestly, I think it is extremely strong and a substitute pick to Malphite, who is banned frequently Patch 5.24.15. After a total 31 games of experimenting in Dia 2-Master Division, I came to the point that I can finally reveal the power of Toplane Alistar.[img=http://i.imgur.com/eSzirFp.jpg]
Don't play too aggressive. Your cooldowns are high and you don't want to use too much mana or push too much.
Powerspike Get your tank items now and forget additional AP. You are still the frontline for your team and a full AP Alistar is still super squishy
Alistar is very strong against most match ups and has a great scaling and carry potential throughout the game. Learn it, pick it, and enjoy results. :)
